The property owner and artist-in-residence has been a local fixture in Palm Springs for years. His large lot and home in the Ruth Hardy Park/Movie Colony area of Palm Springs (not far from Frank Sinatra’s home) has become home to countless sculptures made from various materials including metal and wood.
I don’t know who he is, but all the locals know about the place and it’s quite a marvel. At Christmas, the place is lit up with all sorts of holiday-themed sculptures. The rest of the year, we have the “permanent” collection on display.
Is it hideous junk or genius art? It’s all in the eye of the beholder.
